Fairyland Centre Opening
Our students got a fantastic surprise when the therapeutic
play equipment was revealed! Keith Meiforth and Peter Crealey from
Niagara Therapy flew over from Brisbane, Australia for the unveiling and
showed our students and family/whanau what their company had generously
A large train and bulldozer were the highlight of the day and each
seat between 1-4 of our students. Each seat in the train and bulldozer are
fitted with medical grade ‘cycloid therapy’ which feels like a fantastic
massage or a ‘train going really fast’ as described by one of our students.
While playing on these therapeutic toys, the equipment is proven to increase
blood flow, decrease pain, increase flexibility and calm students who struggle
with sensory input. In addition to these fantastic therapeutic toys, Niagara
donated a large massage chair for our older students, 3 cyclopads and 3
hand held devices. Each device including the massage chair is fitted with
unique 3D cyclonic vibrational therapy which is expected to have short and
long term benefits for many of our students.
Staff, family/whanau and students
wish to thank Keith and Peter and his wife Sue from the bottom of their
hearts for their thoughtful generosity. Our new Fairyland Centre will be
truly a fantastic asset to our students!
